Person from Iowa: I love Iowa. Everyone there is so nice and there aren't obnoxiously long lines or large crowds.
Person from New Jersey: Well, we have the largest strip mall in the world.
Person from Iowa: Oh. I'm sorry.
Person from New Jersey: I really wish I was from Iowa
Person from one of the other 48 states: Me too.

Currently, the Fraternity offers a comprehensive member-education program called The True Gentleman Initiative. The Fraternity communicates through The Record, a quarterly publication that has been published continuously since 1880 . New members receive a copy of The Phoenix, the manual of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, for educational development.
The creed of this fraternity is as follows:
The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety, and whose self-control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power, or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who...
